Medical Devices Regulations (UK MDR 2002): Requirements for Furniture
11th April, 2024

At a glance:

The Medical Devices Regulations (MDR) has an extremely broad remit and covers all products/equipment intended by the manufacturer to be used to diagnose, prevent, monitor, treat, alleviate, compensate for and/or control disease, injury, handicap, physiological process, or conception. It is important to understand that the intended purpose and the way a product is marketed can cause it to be covered or excluded from this directive.

Where other regulations look at eliminating or reducing the risk of injury the MDR takes a different view, balancing risk against benefit. Effectively the MDR accepts that some products might pose a health risk to the user, but it is outweighed by the benefits.
